Aston Martin previews DBS GT Zagato with design and style sketches


Made to celebrate the centenary of the Zagato signature, the DBZ Centenary Collection is a one of a kind package which combines two exclusive autos.

The DBS GT Zagato is primarily based on Aston Martin’s most potent series production auto – the DBS Superleggera – and “embodies the subsequent evolution in Aston Martin Zagato design and style language”, taking inspiration from the voluptuous shapes of the original DB4 GT Zagato.

“A crucial design and style function remains the iconic double-bubble roof. Stretching the complete length of the canopy, this reinterpretation delivers a clean and sculptural kind that flows from the major of the front windscreen to the car’s rearmost tip, discarding the conventional rear windscreen in favour of a purer roofline.”

“The double-bubble theme continues frontwards across the car’s bonnet, reminiscent of the shape and kind observed on original Aston Martin Zagato styles. These flowing curves are complemented by the model’s wide wrap-about windscreen, removing any difficult lines above the car’s shoulder line.”

“Muscular rear haunches provide potent and purposeful definition to the car’s side profile, whilst a one of a kind wheel design and style, headlamps and a striking front grille – a crucial function for all Aston Martin Zagato styles – continue to provide a contemporary twist on the DB4 GT Zagato’s classic kind.”

Speaking of the DBZ Zagato Collection, Marek Reichman, Aston Martin Lagonda’s Executive Vice President and Chief Inventive Officer, added: “In the DB4 GT Zagato Continuation we have a single of the world’s most wonderful and instantaneously recognisable pieces of auto design and style. Generating a auto match to stand alongside it was often going to be a formidable challenge, but also a fantastic motivation. Each design and style teams at Aston Martin and Zagato have with each other risen to the process magnificently taking the currently fabulous DBS Superleggera and shaping anything which retains its identity as an Aston Martin, but expresses itself as only a Zagato can. Sensational-searching and exceptionally uncommon, it is the contemporary incarnation of a timeless icon.”

Initial deliveries to clients will commence QTR four 2019 for the DB4 GT Zagato Continuation and QTR four 2020 for the DBS GT Zagato.
